Bujnoch Sr., Anton


Anton Alois Bujnoch Sr. was called to his heavenly home on Thursday, March 15, 2012 at the age of 87 years young. He was born on October 13, 1924 in the small community of Vysehrad, TX to Victor and Vlasta Matula Bujnoch. The second oldest of six children, his early years were spent attending Vysehrad school and working on his family farm.

On December 21, 1943, he was called to serve his country in World War II. While serving in the US Army, he received the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal with 2 bronze service stars for the Rhineland and Central Europe Campaigns, Good Conduct Medal, Amy Occupation of Germany Medal, Victory Ribbon, and 3 overseas service bars. He was awarded an Honorary Discharge on May 19, 1946.

Upon returning from the war, he spent six months attending Barber School in Austin, TX. After he completed his schooling, he and an army buddy opened a small barber shop in Eagle Lake, TX. Shortly after, he met the love of his life, Emma Etzler, and they married on October 19, 1948. As they settled down to married life, they were blessed with six children: twins Eugene and Anton Jr., David, Joseph, Judy and Geraldine.

A hard work ethic was instilled by his parents at an early age. In addition to working as a barber, he and Emma raised cotton, corn, cattle, pigs and chickens. To meet the needs of his growing family, he went to work as a welder at Kasper Wire Works where he was employed until his retirement in January of 1989.

Retirement gave him time to enjoy raising his garden as well as spending time with his much loved companions Rocky and Peanut. His greatest joy in life was his family, especially his grandchildren. He spent hours watching his favorite TV show, “The Price is Right” or playing a mean game of “Go Fish” at the kitchen table with his grandkids. If that table could talk, it could tell you the many wonderful stories and memories that were shared around it. He loved to reminisce about the good old days and his family treasured the stories and knowledge that he shared with them.

He and his family still raised their own beef and chickens as well as raising sugar cane. When the first cold northern blew in, you could find him supervising his family as they butchered a pig and made sausage. In July, you could find him at the press, watching as the he sweet juice of the sugar cane was squeezed and the juices were boiling to make his much loved molasses. While some may have viewed this as hard work, he looked at it as training the next generation to carry on the traditions that he knew and loved. He was so proud of the way his grandchildren enjoyed learning how to do things “like they were done in the olden days.” He enjoyed sharing stories of his youthful antics and the many memories that he had of growing up on a farm, the hard work they had to do each day and fighting for his country.

As his health became a concern, he made many trips to the doctor’s office. Regardless of how bad he may have felt, he always enjoyed stopping to eat some fried chicken and getting a “Dr. Pepper in a Styrofoam cup with that good ice in it.” He always felt that food could make any situation better.

As he left his earthly dwelling to be with his Lord, he leaves behind his wife, Emma, of 63 years; his sons Anton Jr. and wife Dorothy of Sheridan, Eugene and wife Bettye of Hallettsville, David and wife Sharon of Rockdale, Joseph of Hallettsville, daughters Judy and husband Kenneth Anderle of Shiner, and Geraldine and husband Garry of Hallettsville.

In addition to his children, he is survived by his 15 grandchildren; Jeff Bujnoch and wife Shelly of New Braunfels, Tamara Siegel and husband Benji of Moulton, Anton Bujnoch III (Bucky) and wife Barbie of Sheriden, Lindsey Fisbeck & husband Sean of Weimar, Travis Bujnoch of Sheriden, Angie Wallis and husband Brian of Rockdale, Kelly Clark and husband Chad of Rockdale, Kendra Shows and husband Jason of Shiner, Mandy Fling and husband Jason of Yoakum, Robin Trojcak and husband Michael of Yoakum, Joni Anderle and Skye Anderle of Shiner, Courtney Perez and husband Randy Ray of Hallettsville, Holly Haas and husband Jeremy of Hallettsville and Ashley Dornak and Keith Rainosek of Hallettsville.

He is also survived by 21 great-grandchildren including Kacie, Hannah, Tyler and Abigail Siegel of Moulton; Paisley & Reese Bujnoch of New Braunfels; Cody and Buck Garret Bujnoch of Sheriden, Hannah Fisbeck of Weimar; Alyssa & Braden Wallis of Rockdale; Carlee and Hunter Clark of Rockdale; Cash & Cale Shows of Shiner, Emma and Jake Fling of Yoakum; Ally Trojcak of Yoakum; Rylee Vancura of Shiner; and Kaylee and Adyson Perez of Hallettsville.

Sunny’s Easy Chicken & Dumplings


  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, plus 1 tablespoon
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 whole (5 to 6-pound) chicken, skin on, cut into 8 pieces, including neck
  • 6 cups water
  • 6 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 5 to 6 fresh thyme sprigs, plus 1 tablespoon chopped leaves
  • Small bunch parsley stems, plus 1 tablespoon chopped leaves
  • 2 fresh sage sprigs, plus 1 tablespoon chopped leaves
  • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • 1 stalk celery, trimmed and halved crosswise
  • 2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus
  • 1 tablespoon 1 tablespoon kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
  • Special equipment: Kitchen twine


In a large stockpot over medium-high heat, melt 1/4 cup butter and lightly saute the onions and garlic, about 3 minutes. Add the chicken, water, and stock, making sure liquid covers meat. Tie the thyme sprigs, parsley stems, and sage sprigs together and add to the pot along with the peppercorns, and celery. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer the chicken until it is “fall of the bone” tender, about 30 minutes, skimming off scum as it simmers. Remove the chicken from the pot to a cutting board and let cool. Remove the herb bundle and the celery and discard. Reserve the stock. When the chicken is cool enough to handle, pull it from bones and cut into bite-sized pieces.

In a large bowl, mix together 2 cups of flour with the remaining chopped herbs and the tablespoon of salt. Make a well in the middle and pour 1 cup of the reserved chicken stock, including fat, into the well. Using a fork, slowly stir the stock into the flour. Repeat, adding more flour and/or stock until a soft, doughy consistency is reached. Add more flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, if it gets too sticky. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/8 to 1/4-inch thickness. Use a pizza cutter or sharp knife to slice the dough into 2-inch squares, then cut the squares in half on the diagonal into triangles.

Return the stock to a simmer and slowly add the dumplings, allowing some excess flour to remain on the dumplings to increase the body of the broth. Be careful not to let the dumplings touch as they are added to the pot. Cook until the dumplings rise to the surface. If the broth does not thicken to your liking, mix together 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon flour in a small bowl with a fork. Slowly add the mixture into the broth to help thicken the soup. Stir in the reserved chicken and ladle into serving bowls.
